1957 Topps #95 Mickey Mantle SGC NM/MT 88
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,133
Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. Stunning high-grade example of what is universally recognized as one of Mantle's most classic cards. In addition to being one of Mantle's most striking and popular cards, this card dates from one of Mantle's MVP years and follows his finest season (1956 triple crown stats: 52 home runs, 130 RBI, .353 batting average). The image used on the card features a young "Mick" in a mighty swing-thru pose. This is a particularly sharp example, with perfect registration and flawless surface. The card possesses snow-white borders, four sharp corners, and a flawless reverse. Centering slightly to the left is perhaps all that keeps this example from an even higher grade. This is magnificent ultra high-grade example of Mickey Mantle, the key card from the 1957 Topps set. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grade is $2,750. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,133
